This hour long trip winds you through the streets of Deadwood, where your tour guide describes points of interest, old buildings, and takes you to the "Boot Hill" cemetery. A little corny but we enjoyed the ride. Not a hop on, hop off tour.

It was a fun trip and something different to do in the area. Did not appreciate having to pay so much to park.

We had a short time passing through, but decided to take this bus tour, since it was only one hour. We got a great history, and were taken up to Mt. Moriah cemetery and shown the graves of the notorious. If we had driven up,...More

We love tours. They give you history, often mixed with legend and humour. This tour did it all. Costner bought the hotel and this tour, but that's where his involvement ends. Locals have been giving the tour for years, and continue to please folks. Getting...More

Dear Janet, The tour schedule varies with the month of the year, it's about 1 hour long, the length of time is somewhat flexible, too, and I can't remember exactly what the cost was, but it was very reasonable and tipping... More
